Report on the Working Conference on the SCRDT Teacher Tests For Spanish/English Bilingual Education. Occasional Paper No. 14.
Merino, Barbara J.
This report summarizes the proceedings and outcomes of a working conference of experts, scholars, and educators in bilingual education held at Stanford University on February 12-13, 1976. The goal of the conference was to discuss and improve five tests constructed as part of an effort to improve teaching in bilingual (Spanish-English) education programs. The tests deal with teachers' skills and knowledge in these areas: Spanish of the Southwest, teaching reading in Spanish, teaching Spanish as a second language, teaching English as a second language, and Spanish proficiency. Presentations of the tests, discussions in small working groups, and comments and criticisms in a general session all led to the incorporation of a number of important modifications in the preliminary versions of the tests.
